NORMAN, Okla. — Louisiana Tech head coach Mark Montgomery didn’t shy away from competition when making out the 2014 Lady Techsters softball schedule.
Having already played four games against Top 25 teams this year, the Lady Techsters will turn their attention to defending national champion and 13th-ranked Oklahoma at 3 p.m. today, weather permitting.
That may start to become a regular mantra for Louisiana Tech University’s Bulldogs.
And well it should, given the contributions that the Western Athletic Conference-leading squad has received from its ready corps of reserves and across-the-board depth.
There are no super stars on this team that will enter Thursday night’s 6 p.m. home league game against Idaho with a 14-3 overall record, 5-0 WAC mark, in-season victory streak of six and overall Thomas Assembly Center win string of 10 (best in the WAC, by the way).
Jennifer Schlott scored 19 points and Utah State held Louisiana Tech without a field goal for more than 13 minutes as the Aggies defeated the Lady Techsters 70-56 before 634 fans at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum Thursday night.
Tech (12-14, 8-7 WAC) went the final 12:44 of the first half without making a field goal as Utah State pushed a two-point lead out to 15 at the half.
From start to finish, the emphasis was on “family” and “people” at Saturday afternoon’s ceremonies for the 2011 induction class of Louisiana Tech University’s athletics Hall of Fame.
More than the long list of accomplishments, records and statistics compiled by the “Elite Eight” who comprised the group, this was about remembering those who helped make the special day possible.
